The reporting helps to follow progress in meeting Finland's emission reduction commitments. The estimation of emissions is based on international reporting and methodological guidelines. The indicator does not include the effect of land use, land-use change and forestry (LULUCF), which reduces the impact of the emissions in Finland. Indirect CO2 emissions generated in the energy sector and industrial processes and product use sector from NMVOC and CH4 emissions are also reported in total emissions (0.1 million tonnes in 2014).
- The energy sector: emissions from the energy use of fuels and fugitive emissions related to the production, distribution and consumption of fuels
- Industrial processes and product use: emissions released from industrial processes resulting from the feedstock use and non-energy use of fuels, emissions from the use of F-gases, and emissions from the use of nitrous oxide in industrial and medical applications
- Agriculture: emissions from digestion by the livestock, manure management, soil, crop residue burning, as well as liming and urea fertilisation
- Waste management: emissions from landfills, composting and waste water treatment
